Do you have a sweeping swing or a digging swing? Most pros have a digging swing and a lot of amateurs have a sweeping swing.
The most common miss with the sweeping swing is directional, whereas, a miss with the digging swing can be short, long, AND directional. The digging swing is used by most pros to keep the ball low, with lots of spin, out of the elements of Mother Nature but also requires the technician to be very precise.
A sweeping swing doesn’t require the golfer to be as precise and is recommended for most amateurs.
